“Thank You’ would be enough…

Posted by on Apr 10, 2007 in Happiness, Quotes, Rhonda's Reflections | 0 comments

“If the only prayer you ever said was ‘Thank You’, that would be enough.” — Meister Eckhart Humble and authentic gratitude is indeed a powerful prayer. To be grateful for not only big things but for the simple blessings can carry us beyond challenging circumstances with a greater sense of contentment. One of the greatest heartaches we feel is a lack of acknowledgement. Too seldom are we fully appreciated for our contributions and not often enough do we appreciate the gifts of others sent our way. Yet, it is these simple gestures that grows true happiness and...

Posted by on Feb 1, 2007 in Quotes, Rhonda's Reflections | Comments Off on Creating the Future

And the activity of making them changes both the maker and their destination.” — John Schaar, a sociologist and professor emeritus at the University of California Santa Cruz People live in the present moment only about 7% of the time. We are either busy regretting what we cannot change or worrying about a future that may never come in the form we fret over. In so doing, we miss the wonders of the moment placed right before us.

The Journey Toward Real Magic

Posted by on Jan 31, 2007 in Especially for Women, Happiness, Quotes, Rhonda's Reflections | Comments Off on The Journey Toward Real Magic

“Have in your mind that which would constitute a miracle for you. Get the vision. Suspend disbelief and skepticism. Allow yourself to take the journey toward real magic.” — Wayne Dyer The Law of Attraction calls first for you to know what you don’t want. From this you then can more easily define clearly what you do want. But manifesting does not stop there. You must not only vision what you want in your minds eye, but you must feel it in every fiber of your being. Drink in the feelings and emotions of having what you long for as if it were already yours. Surrender...

Imperfection is Happiness

Posted by on Jan 26, 2007 in Catch All Happiness, Happiness, Quotes, Rhonda's Reflections | Comments Off on Imperfection is Happiness

“Sometimes we strive so hard for perfection that we forget that imperfection is happiness” — Karen Nave Perfection, if it exists, is fleeting. Contrary to what the media and fashion industry industries lead us to believe, there is no perfect shape or size, job, car, or place to live. Life comes with its flaws and highlights, highs and lows, twists and turns, and this is what’s perfect! It hones us, and beckons us to be all we are meant to be. Life is an adventure in which we only genuflect at perfection. One of the few things in life we can count on is change. Life...

Old Habits Die Hard

Posted by on Jan 23, 2007 in Especially for Women, Happiness, Quotes, Rhonda's Reflections | Comments Off on Old Habits Die Hard

“The central method for achieving a happier life is to train your mind in a daily practice that weakens negative attitudes and strengthens positive ones.” — The Dalai Lama Old habits die hard. Many of us hinder our happiness, trapped by the habit of negative thinking. Our unconscious focus is on all that seems not to be working. This expands that reality, and causes us to miss the simple wonders that far out-number any obstacles and irritations. Look around you for 30 seconds and memorize everything that is the color brown. Now, close your eyes, and call out all the things...

Don’t Just Sit There

Posted by on Jan 21, 2007 in Happiness, Quotes, Rhonda's Reflections | Comments Off on Don’t Just Sit There

“Even on the right track, you get run over if you just sit there.” — Will Rogers The year has begun with renewed enthusiasm. There are times we are meant to sit still in silence and conscious inaction, however too often we sit still as a default position. Not making a decision is making a decision. We wait for life to happen to us, thinking ourselves to be a victim of our circumstances, rather than embracing that life is an interactive, co-created experience where happiness is possible regardless of the circumstances. We must listen within and become more discerning about...

… is the motion that runs from the eyes to the tail of the dog, it is the mouth that inflates the lungs of the child that has just been born. It is the singular gift we cannot destroy in ourselves, the argument that refutes death, the genius that invents the future, all we know of God. — Lisel Mueller Rhonda’s comments: The New Year leads me to a deeper awareness of how I can so easily get in my own way, and a quite wonderful way, at that!
